Taiwan Culture Video: Ghost Month in Taiwan

The beautiful hostess of Peggy Teaches Chinese brings us a new Taiwan culture video on Ghost Month.

The Chungyuan Festival(中元節) follows the lunar calendar and this year, the festival, which is also known in Taiwan as “Ghost Month”, beings on July 15th. On this day, the door of the underworld is open for spirits to enter the world. By July 29th this year, the ghosts will return to the underworld. Throughout the month many families and local businesses set up a table which is covered with offerings of food to placate the homeless spirits(aka 好兄弟/hao3xiong1di4 – good brothers ) and for them to fill their stomachs.

READ:  Surviving the Holidays with Chronic Illness - Tips and Tricks

Post Author: Carrie Kellenberger

I'm a chronically ill Canadian who has been living in Asia since 2003. I moved from China to Taiwan in 2006. I'm an experienced businesswoman and have worked in many leadership positions in Asia. In addition to my own work, I've been writing professionally about Asia, travel and health advocacy since 2007, providing regular content to publishing companies and travel publications in Asia and North America. I started writing about my health journey in 2009 after being diagnosed with Ankylosing Spondylitis. In 2014, I was diagnosed with Fibromyalgia and ME/CFS, which came with other massive health issues. These diagnoses were the start of my journey as a health advocate and patient leader. Since then, My Several Worlds has been recognized worldwide as a top site for AS, fibromyalgia, and chronic illness by WEGO Health and Healthline.
